A major focus of Sprout Festival is to provide an educational platform for the festival attendee, and for every person who comes to Sprout Festival to walk away with beneficial learning experiences.
Our workshop and educational space will provide thought provoking information sessions and hands on workshops.
The key theme of these workshops and information sessions will be focused on Sustainability and Environmental Consciousness.
We encourage every festival attendee to get engaged with this area and take home something useful and beneficial.
This space will be facilitated by Organic Motion
Organic Motion was established in 2011 in response to a desire to provide organic and localised food production. Realising the impact that this has not only for our health and well-being, but also this incredible earth that supports us and all of life.
Together as a team of friends and now business partners we nurture this enterprise for the love of engaging with inspiring like-minded people who value a nature connected lifestyle, and want to leave a legacy for future generations. Throughout the years, we have designed and installed hundreds of edible gardens, taught thousands of people skills for sustainability and have provided services throughout Australia and overseas.
Luke McMillan is a recent Bachelor Graduate of Geo-Science Planning on commencing an Honours in Geochemistry in 2020. Chemical tracers and signatures are an ever more powerful tool in understanding the real roots behind what is happening in the microscopic realm of the living and non-living alike. Understanding what is happening at the chemical level has always been at the forefront of Climate Change research, however, the polls are in and it is undeniable that Anthropogenic Climate Change is here to stay. To move forward we must focus on two key aspects
1. Changing the perception of our species as whole and convincing politicians and world leaders that the time to act is now and;
2. Quantifying and implementing tools for change and lifestyle habits to decrease our carbon footprint on the world, including the benefit of strategic technology.
This presentation will be focused on the later, more specifically looking into Negative Emission Technologies (NETs). NETs are anything that remove CO2 from the atmosphere, including reforestation, burial of plant biomass and enhanced weathering. We will be investigating NETs as whole, looking at the pros and cons, the social opinions and potential environment effects. More specifically however i will be delivering insight into one method, Enhanced Weathering, which is currently being researched at James Cook University, Cairns. The Project is attempting to quantify how Enhanced weathering can both sequester CO2 from the atmosphere and increase soil fertility and food security.
Our mission is to help people experience the purest states of peace and joy without the use of drugs or alcohol.

What would that feel like??
The meditation is accompanied with Instrumental Sorcery by Ross, powerfully mastering intention and sound. Ross intuitively plays through the ceremony with the hang drum, flute, tibetan bowls, Crystal Quartz bowls, medicine drums and primordial vibrations of the (yidaki) didgeridoo.
After the Emotional Alchemy and Sound Healing Session, Emma L Baker will be joining the Facilitator team to deliver a powerful SOUL ACTIVATION
Mind, Body, Soul, Alchemy is Emma’s mission, she is here to unravel the conscious and unconscious patterns that are disconnecting anyone from the truth of who they are – releasing all limitations to step in to their birth right power.
Ashaya will then lead us into a free flow, ecstatic dance, while Solomon plays an intricately woven tapestry of ethnic electronic music, sacred bass, tribal beats and a worldly instrumental infusion for the mind, body and soul.
As we treat this workshop very much a sacred and ceremonial space, entry for those under the influence of drugs or alcohol will be DENIED.
Once doors close and ceremony begins there will be NO ENTRY.
